Elliott spent last season on loan at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship, where he managed to score seven goals and register 11 assists – which saw him nominated for the Young Player of the Season award.
Do you think Harvey Elliott is ready to be a regular player for Liverpool?
Elliott could be in line for some first-team minutes at Anfield next season, according to Rimmer.
“You want them to reinvest the money [from selling Shaqiri] and don’t want them to go into the season leaving themselves short. I think they can use this money in other areas, and they can use Harvey Elliott to sort of replace Shaqiri and then spend on another forward.
“[Divock] Origi’s another one, isn’t he, that you think if they can move him on, they’ll certainly need a forward there – so I think Harvey Elliott becomes a real option.”
TIF Thoughts on Harvey Elliott’s future next season…
Elliott was signed when just 16 years old after making his Premier League debut with Fulham during the 2018/19 season under Scott Parker and after a full season in first-team football with Blackburn, the winger could be set for a big leap.
Given the plaudits he has received to date, it seems the Reds clearly know they have a star on their hands, and the fact Jurgen Klopp is giving him minutes in pre-season suggests that Elliott could be in line for some appearances with the first team this upcoming campaign.
